Slovenia's stunning capital is home to a river that flows gently through the old town, so why not admire the ‘Green Capital of Europe’ for yourself by booking a holiday to Ljubljana in 2020? A vast portion of the land is occupied by historic buildings, museums and local businesses, whereas the rest is mostly green, explaining how Ljubljana got its impressive title from the European Commission in 2016. Boasting a traffic-free zone in its nucleus and a castle that dates back to ancient times, there’s a lot to be discovered on holidays to Ljubljana.
From its flower-lined river banks to the sprawling manicured gardens, it’s no wonder Ljubljana is a favoured place on the map for Euro-trippers. This must-visit destination doesn’t have any majorly famous attractions snuggled into its patchwork of fortresses, bridges and cosy houses. However, the flourishing landscape will have you feeling as though you are not in a city at all. Stroll alongside Baroque buildings, attend a musical event, and marvel at Jože Plečnik's architecture by visiting Tromostovje Bridge.

Your guide to Ljubljana holidays
Ljubljana's city character is influenced greatly by its medieval architecture, despite the fact that a lot of the original architectural structures were turned to rubble following an earthquake back in the 1500s. Since 1842, the central of the three bridges that make up the Triple Bridge landmark has remained sturdy and well-maintained. Peruse a fascinating collection of medieval manuscripts inside the National and University Library, and don’t forget to visit the former centre of medieval Ljubljana at Mestini Square and the Town Hall when on holiday in Ljubljana.
Accessing the beaches of Slovenia is not possible on foot. Instead, hire a car, take a taxi or hop on a local bus to City beach in Koper, or City beach in Strunjan. If you’re not up for the journey, bask in the calm atmosphere at one of Ljubljana's vast expanses of flawless green areas.
Park Tivoli is the most sublime of all the city parks. French engineer, Jean Blanchard, designed the park in 1813. A rose garden, artwork, and a glasshouse can be found on its grounds. Some other places where you can swap sand for grassy gardens include Argentina Park, Volčji Potok Arboretum, and the Ljubljana Botanic Garden, where 4,600 species of tropical plant species grow.
